In a blistering social media attack, actress Rose McGowan has accused her former Charmed co-star Alyssa Milano of “stealing” the #MeToo movement and creating a toxic work environment on the set of their hit WB teen series. Her accusations caused the hashtag #AlyssaMilanoIsALie to trend on Twitter.
Their fight has even drawn in Tara Reade, the former Senate staffer who has accused Joe Biden of sexually assaulting her three decades ago.
Rose McGowan fired off her Twitter salvos late Friday, calling Milano a “fucking fraud.”
“You stole #metoo (a brilliant communication tool, not a movement) from Tarana,” McGowan tweeted, referring to activist Tarana Burke, who started the “Me Too” movement in 2006. “You co-opted my movement, the Cultural Reset, for fame, jealous of me for outing my rapist.” (Rose McGowan has accused Harvey Weinstein of raping her in 1997 at the Sundance Film Festival.)
